Summer Chapels in Maine
The 18 summer chapels in Maine that have become communities of worship and friendship over the last 125 years. Many of the chapels date from those times when the Maine coast was growing popular as a summer destination, the days when families came for the summer and when going to church meant walking there.
Today few families spend the entire summer at their second homes. The roads are paved, the cars are dependable. Still, the summer chapels continue to draw families back to mark life's milestones: weddings and baptisms, memorial services and lovely, unremarkable Sunday mornings. The connections remain for those families who have worshipped and celebrated together in places of great natural beauty and the visitors they welcome into their midst.
